Newburyport, MA (PRWEB) March 20, 2012
Freedom Hawk Kayaks, manufacturer of stand-up kayaks for fishing, announced today that its Pathfinder angling kayak received a 2012 Editor’s Choice Award from Fly Fish America. The publication’s editors select winners among the best fly-fishing kayaks and other products in its “Best of the Best New Fly Fishing Gear” annual guide.
“The new-for-2012 Pathfinder from Freedom Hawk Kayaks raises the bar for open water fishing kayaks,” write the editors of Fly Fish America. “The Pathfinder is larger than previous Freedom Hawk boats, with a wider beam, upswept bow with increased flare and volume, and higher freeboard, all designed to make it a safe and dry fishing platform for deep-water reefs, coastal flats, big rivers and larger lakes.”
The Pathfinder fly-fishing kayak is available in yellow, blue, olive or sand colors. The new fishing kayak retails for $1,394.99; a kayak motor mount is also available from Freedom Hawk kayak outriggers for an additional $109 and permits quick installation to transform the Pathfinder into a motorized kayak. In addition, a retractable casting brace enables fishermen to stand up to cast and land fish with complete confidence.
“We appreciate the Editor’s Choice Award from Fly Fish America, one of the most highly respected publications in the fly-fishing industry,” said Freedom Hawk President David Hadden. “Our design team intended to create the ultimate fishing kayak in the Pathfinder, so it’s an honor to be recognized along with other fly-fishing product manufacturers in the annual guide.”
